Experience with Horses

My experience includes volunteering at Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled; leading and side walking, basic horse control from the ground and rider support of both ‘able’ and ‘disabled’. Also gained tacking and untacking experience and some yard cleaning duties. Because of this and helping out on occasion with basic care of my foster family’s horses I believe I have the required/base level experience with horses and am super keen to build upon this. 

Key Skills

I’m smiley and bubbly with a can-do attitude. I’m keen for training and learning so I can improve/work at my best as much as I can. My various experiences allowed me to develop my skills working as part of a team, in varying degrees of structure. I can read and tailor situations accordingly and I have previously proved I can think outside the box.

I also have a First Aid qualification from 2018


Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

I have always had a love for and an interest in horses, horsemanship and its history. I think this opportunity is amazing and has really got me fired up and enthusiastic.
My role at Avon Riding Centre also enabled me to see first hand the positive impact riding and equine relationships can have on people of all ages and abilities – this is not only something that fascinates me but also that inspires me. I’m keen to build my confidence in all departments.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would love to develop my riding skills further as well as improve the various skills of ground horse care and connection. I have done riding lessons previously, but not regularly over a long period of time, and quickly began to feel comfortable and confident in the saddle. I have done a fair bit of flatwork; worked up to a canter and had some casual jumping lessons, however I know my confidence and skill could use improvement in all gaits.
I have never competed but it’s something I’d love to aim for if possible and given the opportunity.


• Do you need accommodation?


• Do you have any special requirements for any animals you wish to bring with you?


• Do you have any ongoing commitments?


• Do you have any holidays booked that an employer needs to know of?
